Please re-test the camera again, after Asus launch firmware update for Camera Quality fix.
Hey guys i want to buy a new smartphone plz suggest me either one plus one, xiaomi mi4i or asus zenfone-2 because i had read a review of asus zenfone 2 i found it very bad plz suggest .thanks
Asus Zenfone 2 is suck, cannot support Dual Sim Toolkit.
For most people sim toolkit is important.
My Old Phone like Lenovo S820 & imo miracle S89 support Dual Sim Toolkit
I am looking at buying the 32GB/4GB RAM version here in New Zealand but they all seem to have the same chip as the 2GB RAM version (Intel Z3560 @1.8GHz) rather than the Z3580 @2.3GHz. Is it only the 64GB/4GB RAM model (not on sale here) that has the 2.3GHz chip?
Anna, 21 May 2015zenfone 2 ze551ml ram 2gb or mi 4i? Hi.
if u want good camera and battery back up, it's mi4i. Performance of mi4i for day today use is pretty good. I have both sets. Zenfone2 bit heavy and disappoints on camera front.
DON'T BUY Asus ZenFone ...
Bad service support
Bad software update
Full of bugs
Recently I buy Asus ZenFone 4.5
Asus promise give lollipop update for ZenFone Users.
Still we r waiting for lollipop update .
All other mobile phone company nw announced lollipop 5.1.1
Asus now in kitkat. They postpone update for ZenFone... shame you Asus...
Please don't buy Asus ZenFone
Marcel, 19 May 2015Is the bloatware from Asus actually uninstallable, or just hideable? An app icon being delete... moreThe bloteware comes from both ASUS and non-ASUS software. Those non-ASUS can be uninstall but not with ASUS. You can only hide it. But trust me you will find that some of the software are very useful.
Now that I writing this on chrome on ZenFone, I left with 2.1 gb ram. So yeah maybe you start with slightly more than 2.5 gb ram if you use the auto-start manager where you can disable apps on start-up.

Also, how much ram is free with the 4gig version? I heard around 2.5gb is user-allowed, which is one main reason I'm looking at it rather than the 2gb (which would have what, half a gig left?).
just got my hands on the 4gb/64gb version and you know what, it worth every penny. good audio quality (from audio technica headphones), good build quality, sharp display, beasty performance and decent camera for a cheap price tag. I was taken by surprise by asus. Some of the bloatware that comes with it can be uninstall easily. Get it!!
Asus Zenfone2,Huawei Honor 6,One Plus One,which one is worth to buy?
Nice but some lake like should be back cover of metal steel body,w/o micro sim, removable battery of min. 4000mah cap., free power bank 9000mah, soldering free charging jack socket available in mother board can be easily remove while destroy or damage .

I have 4GB/32GB version of the Zenfone 2. One of the best units ASUS has ever released. Bit too much bloatware but most of it can be removed with the exception of an add-on for Omlet Chat. So far, I have received 2 updates in the 2 weeks I have had it. The Camera improved quite a lot after one of the updates. The Auto Brightness is a bit dim in certain situations but you can switch it off. It is a great phone for the price. The battery longevity and some light heating issues remain but I think these issues will be resolved when it is updated to Android 5.1. My brother's Note 3 battery life seriously diminished after upgrading to 5.0 from 4.4.2. He also had some stuttering and hanging. My Zenfone 2 has less issues with 5.0 than his Note 3.
Don't let others discount the importance of Android 5.1. I know 5.1.1 is dynamite because my old Galaxy S3 (i9300) is fast and has astounding battery life with the Resurrection Remix 5.1.1 ROM. The Custom Temasek and Resurrections ROMs are so good, I almost considered going back to using the S3 as my daily driver. The big screen and 4 GB RAM of the Zenfone 2 keep me from doing so. If ASUS quickly updates it to 5.1 and resolves most of the current issues, they will have a global hit.
Until now I didn't buy it, but I think "ASUS ZENFONE 2" (ZE551ML) is made for young generation

Qqq, 14 May 2015But most of the reviews on the Internet is based on the old firmware. I want to how how is it ... moreYou might have to wait until the reviews from the Malaysia release from this past week, or the US and Canada release next Monday - although those reviews might only appear at the end of the week.
Basically still camera has improved, but video is still crappy, and if you don't have wifi and GPS on all the time, occasional and moderate use should last you well over a day - as long as you don't use the native browser but Chrome or any third-party browser app.
